I always feel excited when it comes to go to an island. This time was my another adventures visiting Bangka Belitung (BABEL) islands in Sumatera, one of my favorite beautiful islands in Indonesia besides Bali, Lombok, Komodo, Raja Ampat.

Belitung is island with beautiful beaches, unique landscape with white sand, and the crystal clear seawater. Belitung is also popular with its granite white stones beach in Tanjung Tinggi, Tanjung Kelayang, Tanjung Binga dan Lengkuas Island. There are small islands too.
Belitung was formerly known as tin producer.

We're staying here only for 4 days (too bad i don't have much time:-( ).

After we arrived at Belitung airport Tanjung Pandan we directly go to the Tanjung Tinggi, Tanjung Kelayang, Tanjung Binga beach.
These beaches are so quite, full of big granite stones. The sand is white and the water is clear made us feel impatient for swimming:).
We're swam here until sunset. The sunset was so beautiful and lovely.

The next day we're visiting island to island with traditional boat (island hoping). We went to see Burung island, Batu Berlayar island, Lengkuas island (famous with old "Mercusuar" - the view from up here (18th floor) is so breathtakingly amazing) and snorkel in Babi island until sunset time. The sunset is also gorgeous in this island..

This Belitung island is like private island to me..so quiet and calm...secluded island. It is a hidden gem!
If you feel like you want to get away from all the crowd of big city then it is the place!.
You can surely relaxing here...feel the breeze..the sun, swim, snorkel or just lay down on the beautiful white sandy beach.

After from Belitung island we went to Bangka island by passanger boat which is take about 4 hours.
There's not much to see for me in Bangka island but the famous resort is Parai Tenggiri Beach Resort.

Hmm...cannot say anymore..feels like i don't wanna leave this beautiful island.
hope you enjoy the view from these pictures:)
